Opposite Side Of The Clock

December 24, 2018 by Comments


My son lives on the opposite side of the clock.


I’m asleep, he’s awake.


I’m awake, he’s asleep.


I worry when I don’t know where he is when I awake at 4am, look out my window and don’t see his car home.


But then I remember.


I remember he has his own path.


A roller coaster path that many times is cluttered with crisis and turmoil, but always growth and success.

I remember my way is not his way and his way is not my way.


I remember that worrying is using my imagination to create something I don’t want.


So I go back to sleep.

Then he walks in the door, the dog barking lets me know he’s home.

I breathe easier.

I make him a cup of tea and we talk for a couple of minutes.

He goes to sleep.

I go to work.


My son lives on the opposite side of the clock.


Free to be.
